Changi Airport to close Runway 2, planes to use Runway 3 from October 2020

Changi Airport will operate using Runway 1 and Runway 3 from October next year in order to facilitate works for the airport’s fifth terminal and the Changi East Industrial Zone. To ensure the safety of flight operations, Runway 2 will be closed temporarily for the next phase of infrastructure works for the Changi East project. These works are needed to complete Changi Airport’s fifth terminal, the Changi East Industrial Zone and supporting facilities by the early 2030s, and to operationalise a three-runway system by the mid-2020s.

Since 3 runway system will be operationalized by mid 2020s, runway 2 could be closed for 5 long years -- a whopping 5 years delay.

Before, the 3 runway system was planned to be in placed at early 2020.

That is too slow and inefficient.

The JV will undertake several works to operationalise a three-runway system at the airport by the early 2020s as part of the airport’s capacity expansion plans. ... t-4983985/

Taxi times (ouch) will not be pleasant. I think it's time to take a deep breath...
Plane mad!
